MyTaskit signs deal with application developer

MyTaskit and BoatCloud, a scheduling platform developed by Anderson Software, have integrated their leisure marine platforms.

MyTaskit and BoatCloud, a scheduling platform developed by Anderson Software, have integrated their leisure marine platforms.

BoatCloud provides a real-time launch scheduling capability to full-service marinas using the MyTaskit Pro Operations module.

MyTaskit and BoatCloud recently developed an integration using the MyTaskit applications programming interface, or API. The integration has been deployed at Calusa Island Marina in Goodland, Fla.

“We are delighted to be working with BoatCloud to provide this enhanced level of service to our mutual customers,” MyTaskit founder and CEO Kevin Hutchinson said in a statement.

“Both our companies are driven by a passion to streamline and enhance the web-based services for marinas and the nationwide boating community. This integration with BoatCloud is another example of our commitment to extend the best practices of MyTaskit with other world-class service providers in the marine industry.”

“This integration was spurred by Calusa Island Marina, a customer who saw the benefits of both BoatCloud and MyTaskit and wanted to have both in one application,” Anderson Software president and CEO Kevin Anderson said.

“We’re pleased with this partnership because we know this will help marinas be more efficient and boost their bottom lines. It also lets boaters enjoy more time on the water, rather than worrying about all the particulars involved in scheduling, provisioning and preparing a boat for a day on the water.”

Anderson Software developed BoatCloud in 2011 to streamline the means by which marina patrons coordinate the use of their boats.

The company said its mission was to replace the troubled logistics of phone calls, log sheets and radio communications required for marina patrons to get their boat launched on a certain day, at a certain time, with certain provisions and/or services provided by the marina prior to arrival.
